Toy Fox Terrier puppy arrives into new home
When your very new toy fox terrier puppy arrives to it’s new
home - to you, prepare yourself for a small, happy, energetic terrier.
It will eat, sleep, play, chew, bark, lear, pee, and all those things
that small dogs tend to do. From the very first day you should remember
that this puppy is a dog, and you need to set the standards right
from the very first day. For example if you don’t want the
puppy to sleep in bed with you, you can not let the puppy into bed
But it goes without saying that you need to give a lot of love and
affection to the new puppy!
the puppy arrives, you should have ready at home the following:
• Food. We prefer Royal Canin Mini Puppy-kibbles + raw minced
meat, raw chicken legs, some milk products etc. For more info please
read through our Feeding instructions for a Toy Fox Terrier pup.
If you pick up the puppy from us, we will provide you with a 1 kg
bag of Royal Canin Mini Puppy-kibbles. If the pup is shipped to
you, please buy the kibbles yourself.
• Food and water bowls. These should be made out of stainless
steel. Dogs can be allergic to plastic bowls and puppies will chew
them. Therefore always prefer stainless steel.
• Place to sleep. This should be placed in somewhere peacefull,
so that puppy can go there and get rest whenever he/she needs it.
If you pick up the puppy from us, we will provide you with a lovely
soft nest. If the pup is shipped to you, please buy one yourself.
• A few toys. Good toys for the puppy are balls, fake mice
(made for cats), Kong-toys, old socks, etc. The toys need to be
big enough so that the puppy can not swallow them and hard enough
so that the puppy can not bite bites out of them.
If you pick up the puppy from us, we will provide you with a few
toys. If the pup is shipped to you, please buy some yourself.
• Small chewy bones. Make sure that these are made for small
dogs and preferably made for puppies. If you pick up the puppy from
us, we will provide you with some chewy bones. If the pup is shipped
to you, please buy some yourself.

When the puppy comes home, please let him/her make the
tour and check out all of the places that he/she is allowed to enter.
Show the puppy the place to sleep, place to eat & drink, etc.
the puppy outside always right after he/she has eaten. The puppy
will want to pee and poop right after the meal, so this way he/she
will get used to make business outside.
the puppy as much as possible as young as possible. Get him/her
used to people, children, animals (but make sure that vaccinations
are in order before this), travel in car, etc. The more the puppy
has seen, the more selfsure he/she will become as an adult dog.
the first days and night the puppy might miss his/her home, dam,
friends, etc. but this will pass. For the first nights you might
want to visit the puppy if he/she cries and comfort him/her. Remember
that you and your family and now the puppies best friends.
The most important thing is to gove a lot of love and affection
for the new puppy. Always remember to be his/her best friend!
When travelling with your puppy, always make sure that
he/she is travelling in it’s box. This is the most safe place
for the puppy to travel. The puppy is already used to be inside
the box, as we have one travel box inside the puppy room and puppies
like to sleep in there. Your
puppy will get his/her first box from our kennel.
Remember that during Summer time you should not leave the dog in
the car, not even for a bit. The car is way too hot for the small

With small dogs, such as the Toy Fox Terrier, you should always
be very carefull. This small dogs might get step over, left under,
dropped, etc. and these accidents will most likely lead to fatal
injuries. Therefore be very carefull.
Remember that if you lift your dog somewhere up, always also lift
the dog down, don’t ever let him/her jump down bu himself.
This is true even if the dog is an adult.
Most accidents that lead to fatal injuries, happen usually before
the dog is 6 months old.
and dental care
The key to healthy teeth and gums is good food and dental care.
Let the dog eat raw chicken bones to prevent teeth and gum problems.
Brush the dogs teeth every single day with a toothbrush.
This way you can prevent most of the teeth problems that are common
to small dogs.
When the dogs teeth begin to chance at the age of 4-8 months, be
sure you know what’s happening in the mouth. Check out the
dental situation on a daily bases, as you brush the dogs teeth.
If the non-permanent teeth will not drop off by themselves, ask
for assistance from your veterinarian. He might have to pull the
teeth out, if they do not drop off by themselves. This teeth pulling
should happen before the dog is 6 months old, as othervice there
might be developing some missbiting. Please ask for more info from
your own vet, or from us.
The puppy is used to weekly manicures in our kennel - please continue
this on a weekly bases. The nail clipping might turn into something
diabolic, if you do not make sure that the dog is used to this,
from the very beginning. If you pick up the puppy from us, we will
provide you with a nail clipping tongues. If the pup is shipped
to you, please buy one yourself. Cleaning the ears
Check the puppy’s ears twice a month. If they need cleaning,
be very carefull. If you have no idea on how to clean to dogs ears,
ask for assistance from your vet or contact us.
